Heron Hill is a large, luxurious house complete with all of the amenities. The 5 acre grounds are beautifully landscaped and the newly added swimming pool provides additional enjoyment. The Island is 110 miles long with amazing blue water and pink sand beaches. Not a tourist destination so the beaches are never crowded. Coral reefs directly off the shore for diving and snorkeling. Many small restaurants with live music and delicious food. Caving, birding, fishing and exploring throughout the Island. The people are very friendly and will help with any questions. Large organic farms for fresh produce and fresh fish is brought into the dock every day in Governor's Harbour. Tennis Court that can be rented 100 feet from the entrance to the house. Peace, quiet and beauty yet there are not only very good restaurants but also shops with local crafts, a movie theater that serves beer, conch salad and hamburgers, Friday Night Fish Fry and other local events as well as craft fairs and a Jazz festival.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: Physician and Psychologist

Why the Owner Chose Governor's Harbour, The Bahamas:
We had been sailing for many years in the Caribbean looking for our Island home and by accident heard about Eleuthera. This is what we had been looking for. An Island with beautiful beaches and friendly people. Off the main tourist tract. The first time we saw the water and the beautiful deserted beaches we knew we were home

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Close to the United States with the Bahamian dollar on par with the US dollar. Miles of deserted beaches with gorgeous reefs and small settlements with friendly people. Lots of things to do yet off the main tourist radar. Wonderful climate that is between 70 and 85 all year round. Small restaurants, fish frys and lots of local entertainment yet it is unusual to see other people on the beaches. Very friendly helpful people that are always willing to make people feel at home.
